New Timing Belt, Rear Sway Bar, and Trailer Hitch

I took my car down to a friend of my fathers that allows me to use the shop and all its glory! With free roam of the shop and access to a lift we made quick work of everything that we had to get done! Starting with the timing belt...

Wicked Big Meet 2012! Part 1

First off a BIG shout out to Subaru of New England who sent me to the show for free this year! I submitted a photo of myself and my car and a little caption about us and they selected me along with some other people to win two premium tickets! Thanks again! Here's the picture of all of us from their Instagram...
I'm the charming fellow in the blue shirt

Second off I have to say that this Wicked Big Meet was definitely the best one yet! I went last year and this one was a huge improvement over last years. There was much more to do and see and I didn't get bored as quickly as I did last year. Now onto the narrative...

We left around 6:00am or so for our 3 hour drive up to Stafford Springs, CT. It started out just three of us (Green LGT, Flat Black 2.5i, and myself) but we picked up the UGM STI right around the New York border and he stuck with us the rest of the way.

Please try to bear in mind that I took over 200 pictures and they simply all wont fit so I'll just get the highlights :)

Long Time No See!

Its been a while since I've posted on here! To be complete;y honest I was trying to sell my car to get a WRx or STI in white after seeing this picture...

This made me want one in the WORST way, but after realizing that I can't argue with a 33mpg commuter for right now I decided to keep my car. Restart the awesome!

After getting a nice clean wash, and vacuuming courtesy of the girlfriend ;)...

Note the new side skirts ;)

...The buying frenzy continued!

I ordered some more gold high temp paint so I can paint my summer wheels...
Need new paint and rubber

JDM Front 4 Pot brakes with Stainless steel lines for the front and rear, and a COBB 24mm sway bar to match the front Eibach one my girlfriend also bought me:)

Went to the Englishtown Swap meet too and picked up some cool stuff. Got a SOHC JDM License plate for my front window...

Which one looks better?
and some old Subaru service manuals which I thought were pretty awesome. For $10 how could I say no?


Also since the weather is finally getting nice enough to use the bike rack I put on not to long ago (Had a write up but deleted all the pictures) I started going on rides with my friend to get him in shape for the Navy.

That's his Cougar next to me
All ready to go!

That's the general overview of whats been going on but be sure to stay tuned since I'll be updating this blog again!

So as you can imagine packing up everything has taken quite some time to complete. I have quite a few parts that need to go on the car as well as a few Featured Mods posts to do. I'll try to update the blog as soon as possible so in the meantime enjoy some Instagram pictures! Don't forget to follow me @SubyKevin!

Painting The Wheels

 Its been a little while since I've posted! There hasn't been much going on but I did manage to get two things done. I got chrome STI door handles and put them on but that's not very interesting so I wont talk about that. I did however, manage to finally get around to painting my winter wheels gold! Like any true Subaru owner it was bound to happen some time or another...

Mmmmmmm...

A Taste of Winter!

We finally got another snow storm! Its about time after weeks on end of solid 45 degree weather, we got about 6 inches of snow! Like any natural Subaru owner, I took to the roads and parking lots with a couple buddies of mine and had at it!

I must say, the light fluffy snow is much better then the wet heavy snow :)

A while ago I got to take apart an old 99' Legacy GT. I decided to take the wheels off of it since they had some Continental snow tires. Compared to the ASA's with summer performance tires, the new wheels handle AMAZINGLY in the snow. I didn't get stuck once unlike the ASA's, and all of the drifts and turns were much more controlled. You were able to put power down and get grip when and where you needed it, as opposed to the old ones that would just slip.

Continental Snow tires = The Subaru Project Approved!


Just keep truckin'...

Roof Rack!

I finally got the correct Q-Clips to put on my roof rack so I did! The second I got home I tore into the garage, waxed my roof, and went to town. The directions were pretty much straight forward but there was a lot of measuring and making sure that everything is in the right place involved. Slapped on my Q-Towers, threw on some stickers, and what do you know!? I have a completely winter ready car :)

They don't look so dirty in real life haha

Good Old Detailing

Decided to get all of the salt and crud off of my car and give it a nice detailing :) Anybody who owns a Subaru knows how much of a pain the water-based paint it, it'll scratch if you breathe on it the wrong way. Picked up my bottle of compound and wax and had at it! Spent over 4 hours doing the entire car by hand and got some pretty decent results!
